APOLLO MODELS MAG.





Hey bloggers! I was invited by the editor of a fashion magazine from Miami, to showcase my work in it's Spring/summer 2010 Edition. This publication is called Apollo Modells, and it focuses on the positive image of man through fitness, fashion, arts, films and entertainment.
This illustration is from my new GENESIS series, and I called it: "Seriously?? superpowers and everything?". I had a great time doing this one.
Boys, I'm posting a sequel soon - with an Eve, just for you guys! :P

Olá amigos blogueiros! Fui convidado pelo editor de uma revista de moda de Miami, para incluir um trabalho meu na sua edição de Pimavera/verão 2010. Esta publicação chama-se Apollo Models e é uma revista que se focaliza na imagem positiva dos homens através da moda, fitness, arte, cinema e entretenimento.
Esta ilustração pertence à minha nova série GÉNESIS, e o seu título é: "Seriously? superpowers and everything?". Diverti-me bastante durante a sua concepção.
Rapazes...vou postar dentro em breve uma sequela...que envolve uma eva - Só para vocês! :P
